    Why does it matter WHO stepped up to the plate to help liberate them? If we waited for someone else to do it, it may never have been done. As long as they are free, that will make me happy.

    I've had my doubts about Bush also, so I hope what he said today to the Iraqi people is the truth. That their county will be returned to them once it is free and that we are not there to take away their Muslim faith.

    They have tested twice and the stuff is showing as weapons grade plutonium. They will be testing again.

    Underground Nuclear Facility Found in Iraq

    Thursday, April 10, 2003

    BAGHDAD, Iraq — U.S. officials are investigating a massive underground nuclear facility that was discovered below the Al Tuwaitha complex of the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission in a suburban town south of Baghdad.

    While they aren't prepared to say the discovery is the smoking gun proving Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction, Fox News confirmed that officials are very interested in the labyrinth of labs and warehouses unearthed by U.S. forces.

    The discovery was unexpected and forces in the area are testing a variety of things to best determine the significance of the find.

    Marine nuclear and intelligence experts have far found 14 buildings that have high levels of radiation, an embedded reporter from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Thursday, noting that some of the tests have found nuclear residue too deadly for human occupation.

    The Marine radiation detectors go "off the charts" a few hundred meters outside the nuclear compound, where locals say "missile water" is stored in enormous caverns, the correspondent, Carl Prine, reported. Prine is embedded with the U.S. 1st Marine Division.

    "It's amazing," Chief Warrant Officer Darrin Flick, the battalion's nuclear, biological and chemical warfare specialist told the paper. "I went to the off-site storage buildings, and the rad detector went off the charts. Then I opened the steel door, and there were all these drums, many, many drums, of highly radioactive material."

    This underground discovery could still test to be perfectly legitimate and offer no proof of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. The CIA encouraged international inspectors in the fall of 2002 to probe Al Tuwaitha for weapons of mass destruction, and the inspectors came away empty handed.

    "They went through that site multiple times, but did they go underground? I never heard anything about that," physicist David Albright, a former IAEA Action Team inspector in Iraq from 1992 to 1997, told the Tribune-Review.

    "The Marines should be particularly careful because of those high readings," he told the paper. "Three hours at levels like that and people begin to vomit. That leads me to wonder, if the readings are accurate, whether radioactive material was deliberately left there to expose people to dangerous levels.

    "You couldn't do scientific work in levels like that. You would die."

    Capt. John Seegar, a combat engineer commander from Houston, is currently running the operation in Al Tuwaitha. "I've never seen anything like it, ever," he told the Tribune-Review. "How did the world miss all of this? Why couldn't they see what was happening here?"

    and we all know how reliable, unbiased and fair Fox News is.

    Doh! You are correct Azalo....the Fox News is only a government propaganda tool. As are CNN, MSNBC and ABC. I forgot. We cannot trust the media for anything. It is all lies.

    All that talk about low fat, high fiber? Forget it! Lies! Propaganda to make the cattle ranchers happy. Go ahead, eat some french fries; they are good for harmful chemical reaction, as noted by Swedish doctors. All lies. The US was on it's "Hate France" propaganda machine long before the war started. Quite wiley, no?

    I wonder when they (the US gov) are going to start cutting out the tounges of dissenters?

    to suggest that FOX news is an independent news channel is kind of naive.

  • teenyuck

    Realist, that is my problem. I trust everything and everybody. I would never think someone wanted to pull the wool over my eyes. Go my posts.

    Such is the life of an ex-jw....I am forced to live the life of a dupe believeing everything I read. And I mean everything. It has gotten so bad I am not eating. All the reports, the confusion! I don't know who to believe. Dr. Atkins? The Zone? All the propaganda and confusion.

    I just don't know where to turn. Maybe I'll go back to the KH to have the scales removed from my eyes.

    well, believing everything is better than my see, i now realize that everything coming from the mainstream media is one big lie, so i choose to believe nothing....and i mean nothing. i saw on the news last night where the amber alert system looks like its probably going to become law nationwide.....immediately i started wondering, what does bush have up his sleeve this time? for what nasty purpose is he going to exploit these poor missing children? its got to be some sort of conspiracy to rob me of my tax dollars, so i for one have already decided to avoid checking the alerts whenever i see giving this government a big boycott on their newest scheme......and i suggest you do the same.


  • tyydyy

    LOL @ dubla

  • teenyuck

    dubla, that is similar to the system to locate lost dogs....I am not going to pay attention to either one. How many of those dogs were actually *lost* and not just dumped by their owners? I think quite a few. (taps forefinger to temple)

    I am getting better at not believing everything I read.

    I am even starting to think the bible might not be the true word of god. How bad is that?

    LOL .... for some reason i don'T think your post was meant seriously


    sorry! i thought you have been sarcastic!
